Warm spices, such as cinnamon, are used to this apple cinnamon bread to enhance the flavor of the apples. A loaf of fresh handmade yeast bread has a more comforting aroma than an apple and cinnamon pie.  

This recipe yields two loaves, which you may enjoy, freeze, or give as a gift. This apple cinnamon bread is fantastic when sliced fresh from the loaf, but it's also great toasted, spread with butter, and sprinkled with flaky sea salt.  

This apple cinnamon bread recipe calls for active dry yeast, which is not the same as rapid rise (or quick rising) yeast, instant yeast, or fresh yeast. All yeasts are utilized differently and for different reasons, therefore it's critical to select the proper one.  

Bread flour: While it may appear apparent to use bread flour for bread, many bread recipes employ different types of flours for various reasons.  

This apple cinnamon bread recipe calls for bread flour, which has more protein than all-purpose flour. More protein equals more gluten, which is what gives bread its distinctive crunch.  

Apples: The type of apples you use in baking affects both flavor and texture. Granny Smith apples are used in this recipe because their firm texture allows them to hold up while baking, resulting in distinct bits of apple swirled into each slice of bread rather than applesauce in the center.
